One way to stay in shape, is to do an ab work out, or a yoga routine. With a yoga mat, it adds cushion to your floor and it helps so your not laying on the nasty floor. These roll up nicely that you can store in your closet or under your bed. You could even use these to sit on if you're studying or watching TV with friends.

My favorite quote on fashion: “Today, fashion is really about sensuality—how a woman feels on the inside. In the '80s women used suits with exaggerated shoulders and waists to make a strong impression. Women are now more comfortable with themselves and their bodies—they no longer feel the need to hide behind their clothes.” - Donna Karan
Outfit #1: A white v-neck tank top, medium wash boot cut jeans, metallic t-strap sandals, and a long pendent.
This by far has to be my favorite outfit you can dress it up by adding a sleek blazer and a nice pair of heels, this look is perfect for going to class or studying in the library because it's comfortable and that's what's important to me when I get dressed COMFORT if I don't feel comfortable or after a few hours in the outfit I wanna take it off I won't wear it. Every girl should have a classic white shirt and a nice fitting pair of jeans doesn't matter the style choose what's right for you.
Outfit #2: Black and white loose fitting striped tank top, hot pink skinny jeans, black boyfriend blazer,black heels and gold jewlery.
Now this look may be a little too dressy for most people to wear to school but for me it's just perfect I love boyfriend blazers I think they combine the loose fit of a guys blazer with the structure of a girl blazer perfectly and once again they're comfortable, I understand that some people don't wear heels to school I wear heels 80% of the time because I'm a midget :( lol but if you aren't comfortable wearing heels to class you can switch them out for a black pair of converse or a black pair of wedges whichever you decide MAKE IT YOURS!!!
Outfit #3: White scoop neck tshirt, black skinny jeans, acid wash crop jean vest, and black converse.
I'm wearing this outfit now lol that's why I posted it but I think it'll be a good outfit to wear to class because it's simple and easy to throw on this outfit, outfit #1 and outfit #5 are my version of wearing sweats to class it's comfortable like sweats but you look a little more put together.
Outfit #4: Grey tank top, white baggy skinny jeans, silver belt, grey jacket and silver wedges
Can you tell I like skinny jeans? lol I find myself wearing these a lot and I just love the colors but I do find myself buying certain pairs a size bigger because I think they look cuter when they're a little baggy. I love how grey and white looks together I think it just looks so sleek.
Outfit #5: Graphic tshirt, dark wash bootcut jeans, and converse
Easy, simple, and comfortable just roll out of bed and put these one (after you shower of course lol!) This is a everyday outfit for me when I'm studying, running errands, or just hanging out with friends, especially during finals because who really has the time to pick out an outfit between studying all night and stressing about passing your finals so just throw this on.
I know my style isn't like the rest of you girls so I know some of you might not like these outfits but this is what I would wear to class everyday so if you don't like the outfit as a whole feel free to take what parts you do like and make it your own I would LOVE to see how you guys recreated these outfits! :)

Being successful in university is largely dependent on forming good habits. Study habits, eating schedules, multitasking skills, class/gym/work/study/friends routines, to name a few. Bad habits can make it a lot harder to be successful, especially if your "poor habits" are things like watching TV instead of studying, or pulling all-nighters every single night. These are my tips for breaking bad habits, and forming new, good ones!
#1. Admit when you need to break a habit.
As is true in any case, admitting you have a problem is step one! You can’t break a bad habit until you’ve recognized you have one. Whether it’s a habit that’s bad for your health (i.e. smoking, not sleeping, not eating), or one you’re simply not happy with (i.e. biting your fingernails, staying up all night on Facebook,taking the long way home everyday because there’s a cute boy who lives on that route who you may or may not run into), is not so important. The important thing is that you’re making this change for you, and you’re commited to making the change.
#2. Jump in head-first
Let’s say, for example, your bad habit is studying for hours on end, and then crashing from exhaustion. Make a point to take study beaks every half-hour or so. Set a timer so you don’t forget. Force yourself to stop and takea ten – fifteen minute break because you know it’s good for you, even though your body is telling you it’s breaking a routine. You’ve decided to break a habit, and you literally need to break it, sometimes with brute force!
#3. Build a strong support circle
Tell your friends, roommates, or family that you’re trying to break a habit, and ask them to help you out. If you’re trying to stop ordering dessert every time you eat out, let your dining companions know this, so they can help support you and keep you on track. This is especially important if you have a hard time breaking habits or changing routines; often, all you need is someone to remind you of your goal to help you reach it.
#4. If you relapse, don’t come down hard on yourself.
If you’re trying to stop biting your nails, for example, and you notice you’ve been unconscioulsy gnawing on your cuticles while watching T.V., don’t get mad at yourself or feel likea failure. Positivity will get you much farther than negativity ever will. Acknowledge you’ve hit a road bump, and start again. After all, you’re the one who wants to break this habit, you’re doing it for you and you alone, so your biggest supporter should be you.
#5. Reward yourself
If you’ve gone a week without chewing your hair, smoking a cigarette, or pulling an all-nighter, reward yourself! Breaking habits is hard, especially when you’re a university student who has millions of things to think about at once, so indulge yourself! Last year I had a terrible habit of eating at the most expensive spot on campus every day, so if I’d go a week without eating there I’d treat myself to one meal as a reward. I also had a bad habit of only taking my make-up off at night, but never actually washing my face. So if I’d go a couple weeks without forgetting to clean and moisturize my skin, I would buy myself a new make-up item or something.
#6. Form GOOD habits
Sometimes it takes forming a good habit to break a bad one, like in my face-washing example above. Focus on the positive. Instead of thinking about getting rid of bad behaviour, focus on creating good beahviours. Try getting into the habit of attending yoga classes. Or, if you have poor study habits try and form a whole new study schedule. That way, your focus is on creating something new rather than destroying something old. Breaking bad habits and creating good habits really do go hand-in-hand, more often than not. It's a lot easier to create a new study schedule (and stick to it) if you're going into it with a positive mindset. You can't simply "get rid of" a poor study schedule without introducing a new one.
Stay strong! You’re capable of more than you think!
Stay motivated, stay happy and healthy! Happy habit-breaking : )

We all love to have a load of money saved up just in case there is something we want to buy in the future, but now since college is coming up, saving is essential. Spending our money is not an easy option like it used to be.
- A laptop
- A laptop Sleeve Protector
- A wireless mouse
walmart.com (for dorm supplies)
- Bathroom essentials
- Kitchen supplies
- Bed sheets, pillows
This is not including books, new clothes, dorm rental, food, and the actual classes. Freshman year alone in college can come out to over $10,000. That is quite a chunk of money.
Also, senior year will cost over $1,000 because of Prom, Homecoming, Birthday, Holiday's, Class Ring, Graduation, etc.
Money goes fast, so I'm here to give you helpful tips on how to save up for high school and college.
- Get a part time job!- Getting a job may seem complicated due to the economy, but do not worry, there is always something out there! Getting a part time job on your college campus is also a very good idea, you get to stay at the school and not have to travel or spend more money on gas. It's also more convenient, and you have a better chance of not coming to work late.
- Become a representative!- Becoming a representative to a company can be very fun. The best companies to go to are Mark, or Avon. These two sites involve makeup and beauty. You can work at your own time, never get fired, and sell great products! Click on the company names above for more information.
- Sell stuff!- Selling anything you have is a great way to make money! You could have a yard sale to get rid of anything you don't need, or want. Also, Ebay is a great way to sell stuff. (helpful tip, whenever you see a clearance item when shopping that could make you a few bucks, buy and sell it online, you could make a great profit) Another great place to make money is at Plato's Closet. Click the company names for more info.
- Babysitting!- Babysitting is an easy way to earn cash. You can pet sit a neighbors dog, or babysit a relataves or friends child, there is always opportunities, just ask around!
- Just save!- If you can't do any of the above, then just save as much as possible! Save up all the money you receive for birthday's or holiday's. If you still want to spend, put a certain amount of money into a jar that you swear not to touch unless it is for college or high school necessities. Saving smart is the best way to go!
